Debian Security Advisory DSA-1631-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Steve Kemp August 22, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : libxml2 Vulnerability : denial of service Problem type : local Debian-specific: no CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-3281

Andreas Solberg discovered that libxml2, the GNOME XML library, could be forced to recursively evaluate entities, until available CPU & memory resources were exhausted.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.6.27.dfsg-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your libxml2 package.

Upgrade instructions


wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for sources.list as given below:

apt-get update will update the internal database apt-get upgrade will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.
